We stayed in the Wagtail Eco Camp for three nights… I remember the day we arrived there, we told our tour guide we’d stay no longer than one night, because the room we were assigned was damp and the sheets were all wet because of humidity… but we ended up staying three nights, and only because of the friendliness and...

Excellent for trekking the southern gorillas. Very friendly and helpful staff, the tent bandanas are great. Very good food! In the evening they light a large fire in the garden which you can sit and eat around. The village in which it is located is very nice.

I absolutely loved Wagtail, and its location is perfect for Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. I was near the end of my 10 day Uganda Safari when I stayed at Wagtail, enjoying the location and staff for 2 nights. Of all the places I stayed the staff here were by far the friendliest and most helpful. There were smiling... More

Usually do not mind rustic accommodations, but overall did not enjoy Wagtail. Room/cottage was very damp and musty, making it really uncomfortable for sleeping. Seemed like at one point it might have been a nice place, but is wearing down. Only hotel we stayed at in Uganda & Rwanda without mosquito nets, we didn't have mosquitos but room was filled... More

Eco word shouldn't be attached to this lodge. It's built on cut trees, the walls in the room are covered in raw concrete, but they don't have water and electricity is poor, so may be that's why they call it Eco. No mosquito nets in beds, but i can assure there are mosquitos and many other insects. In the night... More

Great service from start to finish. Warm towels, gnuts and juice upon arrival, and great food. Nice deck to enjoy a drink on, or you can walk right out the door and have one in town. Only negative feedback was that the wine is overpriced, stick to beer and you'll be alright.
